Bellbridge Primary School offers camps for Grade 4-6 students, including an annual combined camp for Grade 4/5 which alternates between the beach and the bush, and a Grade 6 camp. These camps offer students opportunities that may not be offered in the traditional school setting.
GRADE 4 AND GRADE 5 CAMP
Our Grade 4 and Grade 5 students enjoy a combined camp each year, allowing our school to make use of venues that typically require larger numbers of students than one year level can fulfil.
The cost for the Grade 4/5 Camp has typically been approximately $230, which covers accommodation, meals, transport and supervised activities.
The Grade 4/5 camp alternates between a bush camp and a beach camp, with recent venues including:
GRADE 4/5 BEACH CAMP: ANGLESEA (YMCA) CAMP
GRADE 4/5 BUSH CAMP: ARRABRI LODGE, WARBURTON
GRADE 6 CAMP
The Grade 6 Camp is a fantastic opportunity for the students to take on different leadership roles and positions of responsibility; further develop social skills, initiative and independence; and celebrate the final year of primary school together.
In recent years, the Grade 6 Camp has been held at Mt Morton Lodge in Belgrave Heights during the last week of Term 3. The campsite is well equipped with comfortable cabins, dining room, recreation room, a stage and outdoor socialising and recreation areas. The students are involved in a range of activities including hiking, bush-cooking, archery, yabbying, low ropes, rock-climbing and lots more. We have also taken a ride on the historic steam train, ‘Puffing Billy’ and enjoyed all the sights of the Dandenong Ranges.
The cost for the Grade 6 Camp has typically been approximately $300, which covers accommodation, meals, transport and supervised activities.
In order to make our Camp experience an enjoyable one, parents have assisted with supervising activity and duty groups, participating in adventure and sporting activities, and having lots of fun!
